Mostly atmospheric ambient pieces, but when the drums enter in some tracks you realize that this is quality dreamy post-rock. It just so happens the drums and rhythm are optional. Fans of Tortoise, Do Make Say Think, Bowery Electric, Brian Eno, Harold Budd should pay this cd some serious attention. Its pretty much like taking 6 extra strength vicodin washed down with a large Sapporro without the immanent threat of death (don’t ask me how I would know).
1) very quiet atmospheric fade-in, 1minute later a chill ambient-noise rock piece materializes, post rocky drums (medium paced) and an overall swirling but musical (i.e. “band”) song
2) a lush, slow to evolve narcotic bliss
3) bliss continues until midway (~3min) when a slightly halting drum beat appears, ebbs and flows
4) another dreamy piece, a cloud and a nod-off on magnetic tape
5) dreamy atmospheres until ~2:30 in and it launches into a full-on Bowery Electric bliss out
6) electronic melody and overall feel, upbeat with drums, very songlike/musical
7) very chill, lovely, then after ~3min things suddenly explode into an amplified version of the intensity
8) chill space music, kinda new agey
9) serious ambient chill sounds, stripped down completely
10) melodic trippiness to this very chill ambient piece somehow Bill C.
CD2: (three long tracks): All absolutely EPIC atmospheric ambience, like the previous cd was an obligatory tease. Each track explores sonic blissful layering. Track 3 is shorter, radio friendly and features a nicely played piano that is truly beautiful with the ambient soundbed. Eno probably listens to this when he wants to chill.
